Stance on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

A group of people put their hands together in a circle.

This year brought a renewed focus on equality and justice in the United States. This energy inspired our Leadership team to look within our company to see how we can improve our efforts to create a more diverse and inclusive environment, both inside and outside our organization.

We communicated our support to help tackle discrimination and bias and will focus on efforts on how we attract external candidates in the Workforce, how we develop a more diverse and inclusive Workplace culture, and how we engage with our customers and community in the Marketplace.

We recognize there are always areas of opportunity, such as increasing minority representation in management roles. In 2020, the first step in our DE&I journey was to listen and learn. To assist us in identifying our strengths and gps in various DE&I areas, we canvassed our employee population by conducting a survey. Those results will be used to shape our go-forward strategy.

Additionally, we will form a Diversity Council to help us evaluate how we raise awareness on the issues impacting minority groups and support initiatives to improve inclusion within Benjamin Moore and our community.

At Benjamin Moore, we strive to ensure that all employees are treated fairly and equitably—from our Open Door philosophy to providing a Harassment-Free environment. We also believe diversity of culture, talent, and varying perspectives is key to a collaborative, innovative, and successful business. We will continue to drive change to help make a more inclusive tomorrow for all of our stakeholders.

Benjamin Moore provided an initial donation of $25,000 to the National Urban League to support historically underserved groups and is working with the organization to build an impactful partnership, on both the local and national level.

"Change is possible, change is inevitable—and right now, it's necessary."

 - Dan Calkins, Chairman and CEO
